I've given up on high end full range speakers due to room issues and am now pursuing monitors.
Due the great review in TAS I researched and acquired a pair of Focal Electra 1007 BE monitors. I really like them but my findings match the magazine's in that the tweeter is a little forward.
Then I received the Buyer's Guide and instead of just recommending this model, they also recommend the Micro Utopia BE, citing that the tweeter was not as forward and the midrange not as lean. This same issue included a matrix chart for comparison of all the products recommended (for that category). The Micro Utopia's are listed as having a slightly higher sensitivity (90 vs 89 of the Electra) and that bass extension was down to 35hz (whereas the Electra only goes to 46). It sounded like this would confirm the meatier midrange.
Anyhow, I couldn't verify these specs as the product is discontinued, so I bought a used pair only to find that there is less bass then the Electra and the manual for the Micro Utopia Be states the sensitivity is 89 (same as Electra) and bass only goes down to 50hz.
So my question is this: the speakers I bought were 5 years old; did JM Labs/Focal update the model along the way or are these misprints in the Buyers Guide?
